Lake O’Hara Sunrise

Todd Lachance, Lake O'Hara Sunrise, Oil, 7 x 14, Framed

Spending a lot of time outdoors and immersing myself in the geography of my subject, I try to work in natural settings and from life as much as possible. This is reflected in my artwork. In the studio, larger paintings are created from smaller outdoor sketches. This was a process I learned from by the likes of Tom Thomson. I am self-educated. I travel to seek out paintings by the masters that inspire me. By seeking out these artists I can learn from their work. Like my predecessors, I am fascinated with light and colour and how it affects our world. This is what I paint.

I have been a professional artist for over 20 years and am currently represented by Mountain Galleries which are located in the Fairmont Hotels in Banff, Jasper and Whistler. In March, 2018 I participated in the People’s Portrait Prize in Calgary and won the grand prize, the People’s Choice Award.
